jersey and virginia, from these elections we have already had, no such parallel has already taken place. we already know that the popularity of the new new deal simply is not there in practical and objective terms. even if the rosy scenarios that have karl rove chuckling and i do not come to be, everybody agrees that the democrats are going to lose a significant number of seats in the house and the senate. how significant? that is for the pathologists to predict. that fact, in and of itself, proves that the climate is very different than it needs to be to support the idea that we are entering a new new deal. the fact that these predictions so omnipresent out in the political and intellectual culture says something about why obama and the democrats have so fundamentally overreached. they thought it was true. they were working on an understanding of the political climate that actually did not track with reality. a very good explanation or one of the reasons why democrats so overreached came from j cause, someone who does political analysis. he pointed out that, in the 1960's, the committe

, the previous generation. host: nelson from west virginia. if you are from generation x, or generation y, we want to hear from you, since you will be in europe in the world -- you will be inheriting the world from the baby boom generation. and those folks that came out of the world war ii years, if you would like to talk about the baby boomers and what you left them, that would be an interesting conversation as well. the next call is from wisconsin, ron on the democrats line. ron, what generation are you in? caller: high may boomer -- i'm a boomer, born in 1947 and i think the article is way off balance. i think the contribution of the boomers goes beyond any of the other generations in the fact that people nowadays can actually say no, instead of just marching in lockstep with what happened up until the 1960's. we could say, hey, wait a second, something is wrong, and to make changes. and these changes really shaped present generations. and i think if anything, the present generation are the ones that are released boyle, undereducated, and really do not have a direction. -- are really spoil
of the capitol but in a hardware store in northern virginia. it's by design emphasizing the issue, jobs and the economy. >> what do we know about what's going to be in their agenda? >> five major themes. the five major themes are going to be jobs, spending, health care, national security, and reform of congress itself. specifics on these things are not holding them close to the vest so far. but the economy is definitely going to be the top issue. there's no kquestion about that. and it's interesting that there's a not, we're told, from gop sources to tea party issues. no it just a promise to repeal the health care bill, but a legislation and scrutinize legislation to make sure it's constitutional. another nod to the dominance of the economy. we're told not to expect much by the way of social issues in this republican ape general da, abortion and gay rights and things like that. >> they're going to avoid that. why is it so important to the republicans right now to be unveiling this new agenda. >> republican strategists, we talked to them for months and months. they understood that the mi
brown election we know from the events in nernlingsz and virginia and all the elections we had that no such parallel has taken place regardless of how the midterms turn out. we already know that the popularity of the new, new deal simply isn't there in practical octoberive terms, so even if the rosy scenarios don't happen, everybody agrees democrats are going to lose a significant number of seats in the house and senate. how significant, that's for someone else to predict, but that fact in and of itself proves the political climate is different than it needs to be to support the idea we're entering a new, new deal. so, i think the fact that these predictions were so omnipresent says something about why obama and the democrats have so fundamentally overreached. it's because they thought it was true, and they were working on an understanding of the political climate that actually did not track with reality. i think a very good explanation for one of the reasons in the democrats so overreached came from jay cost who does excellent political analysis for real and clear politics. ja

, former governor wilder of virginia. same thing. >> and bill clinton said essentially you got to stop saying this stuff is working. you know, this is a president with a really long list of legislative accomplishments. he clearly wants to get out and tout this stuff. the stimulus is entirely unpopular and not working. so carville, you know, the white house loves when they get suggestions from former clinton people on what to do, right? but i mean, carville says -- and i think he's got a point here, you've got to emphasize the fight and notes in low look in the rearview mirror here -- and not necessarily look in the rearview mirror here. >> and the president says the plan is working, focus, focus, focus. what about the message? >> they've got a message and it's not a placid time. the gulf oil spill probably set them back two to three months. that combined with their self-inflicted damage by dragging out the health care thing. there's also a sense of sort of like political a.d.d. at 1600. they lurch from topic to topic. there is no coherent strand. the thing you hear more than anything e
